The Watermark is Looking for Your Submissions!

Share Your Paintings and Your Favorite Books about Art!

Members’ Gallery

The Watermark staff invites WSO members to share images of your paintings in a fun and informal way in the Members’ Gallery published as a Watermark accompaniment and on the WSO website.

The November 2022 theme is The Sky’s the Limit. If you are interested, please submit an image of one watercolor or acrylic painting. Photo should be in jpeg form, cropped to show the painting only; there should be no mat, frame, or glass visible. Name the jpeg file using your full name (last, first) followed by the title of the painting—for example, JonesTom-BeautifulFlowers.

If you are comfortable with formatting, resize image to 1200 pixels on the longest side and 300 dpi. In addition, in body of your email, please give WSO consent to display the image on the WSO website.

Email your painting photos by October 12 to Leslie Dugas at with the subject line “Members’ Gallery submission”.

Collective Wisdom

Which books have you read that focused on artists, art techniques, or the art world, and that offered you new insights relating to your own artistic style or profession? Or which books in this genre simply intrigued or entertained you?

For the November 2022 issue of the Watermark, please share with your WSO friends and fellow artists up to three of your favorite novels or non-fiction books about art. Provide the name of the book, the name of the author, and up to three sentences about each book.

Email your recommendations by October 12 to Ilana Hoffman with the subject line “WSO Collective Wisdom”. Ilana’s contact information is listed in the Member Roster and Handbook.
